My A to Z Challenge posts start with the letter A on 1 April and will end with the letter Z on 30 April. The days in between? In alphabetical order?? Well, not so much.
Just sayin’.

A-to-Z-Challenge-theme-reveal

 

alphabet treeThe 2014 A to Z April Challenge is designed to challenge bloggers to post Monday through Saturday during the month of April resulting in 26 blog posts. If you can keep up. The A to Z part of the challenge consists of using the letters of the alphabet—one per day—on which to base your posts. It helps to have a theme to tie your posts together and I think it was easier to come up with 26 words to use as topics because I had an overall theme. Although I fudged a little and some of my words are actually phrases. (hehehe)

Since this is a blog about family history, my theme is Using Microsoft OneNote 2010 for Genealogy Research. My focus for the 2014 A to Z April Challenge will be explaining the way I use OneNote in my own family history research. I have 26 topics — A to Z — for OneNote. My posts will begin with the Letter A on 1 April and end with the Letter Z on 30 April. However I won’t be posting the rest of them in alphabetical order. (You will thank me later when the posts flow in order through the 26 topics rather than alphabetically.)

You can find a link to all the topics as they are posted listed on my OneNote A to Z tab above.

 

I just love the quirkiness of a Leap Year wedding, don’t you? One hundred and ninety years ago, my 3rd great grandparents were married on 29 February 1824 at the Manchester Cathedral in Manchester, England.
